    I got my ideas by reading and viewing all the wonderful designs on BYC. I am certainly not a carpenter being a Computer Network Engineer.

    I wanted to have something that was not only functional but also ornamental in the yard. I am not quite finished yet as I still need to get the roof and my outside run area finished but at least it is ready for my Chickens to move in. Enjoy.

    I couldn't figure out where to buy Windows the size I needed so I found a really cool plan for building my own case windows and so I create mine from scratch. This way i could Use whatever dimensions I needed.

    Getting these doors done were hard for me. I am not a carpenter and so i had to look on youtube for ideas.

    OK so i finally got the chickens out of the house and into their new home. It's still not complete yet but good for now.

    I finally got finished with the chicken run area. I have just been letting them free range the whole yard.

    Nice job on the windows. Where did you find the plans for them? We had a tough time making ours.
